      Hi Everyone,

      I moved to Tirol, Austria in December and immediately registered with the Gemeinde, so I have my Anmeldebescheinigung.

      I contacted the Bezirk civil servant responsible for the Article 50 Aufenthaltsbewillungsantrag who tells me that I need to have a job in order to apply for it.

      My question is, if I find a job, am I allowed to work here in Austria? (I am currently looking)

      I called the local Arbeitsmarktservice who tells me I can only work once I have shown proof that I have applied for an Aufenthaltsbewilligung.

      I am not sure if what these officials are telling me is correct, but if so, then it seems I am caught in a catch 22 whereby I can’t apply for a residence permit without having a job, and can’t get a job without applying for a residence permit.

      Would appreciate some advice on the matter!

      I previously lived and worked in Austria so have an (inactive) Sozialversicherungsnummer, don’t know if that helps anything.

      In case I am allowed to work, I would also wonder if I would be able to register with the AMS so they can help me find employment? I guess I wouldn’t get unemployment money or health insurance like used to be the case when out of work?

      Regarding the work scenario if you look on the UK Embassy in Vienna Facebook page you will find your answer – Yes.
